Brothers of the same parents coping with different cultural backgrounds
13 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

A hilarious film which covers a lot of ground. I wish all my African friends in Africa who desperately want to come and live in the UK could see it, they would get a taste of real life in London. An educational film revealing how cultures are created, established and warped. Lots of action, romance and slapstick. It deserves to be shown in film festivals, such as the Zanzibar film festival and others throughout Africa and the rest of the world. The storyline is set in Peckham, London. The issues are complex and relevant. The period of time covers one day. The storyline is believable and coherent. The viewer gets to learn about cultural, racial and historical differences.
